Hotel Des Indes, a Luxury Collection Hotel
Ranked #2 of 67 Hotels in The Hague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 November 2011

The location of Des Indes could not be better: right on Denneweg, a street with many cafes and restaurants, one block from the Pairlament, 3 blocks from the centre of town. Rooms have been tastefully remodelled.Bathrooms are also very large and modern and come with all the standards. For the best views ask for a room facing the square (Lange Voor...?), although other rooms also have nice city views, specially the ones on high floors. There is a small gym and a pool. The restaurant serves pretty good food and there is also a nice bar. I had breakfast once and it was good. The staff are friendly, but the atmosphere could sometimes feel a bit stiff. Overall I enjoyed my stay, particularly the quality of the rooms and the central location of the hotel (easy to walk anywhere). I personally prefer modern to traditional, so cannot say this is my favourite hotel, but if you like luxury in the "old fashioned way", you would probably like it.

Dear Traveller,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Hotel Des Indes.

We are glad to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us.

Because of the location of Hotel Des Indes, all the important locations in the city are on walking distance. Also, because of the great amount of embassies in the neighbourhood, the area is very safe.

We hope to welcome you back soon to Hotel Des Indes.

Kind regards,

Pierre-Henri Bovsovers

Excellent property with lovely well furnished rooms. We had two rooms and wanted them as connecting rooms & even though this was committed to in the reservation, we were put into two rooms connected with a steep staircase! This was remedied the next day but I was dissatisfied at he fact that the commitment made during the reservation was not kept.

We requested two baby cots and were surprised when we saw two travel cots in the room. These were perfectly functional, but not something we would expect in a luxury collection property.


Room service was always very prompt and breakfasts were excellent. The choice of room service during the day/night was limited. The property itself is not very child friendly, with difficulty bringing in large strollers into the rooms. The location is excellent.

Dear Traveller,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.com.

We are sorry to read that there were a few points that were not to your entire satisfaction. Please note that due to the fact that our hotel is situated in a monumental building all rooms are different is size and features. This is also the reason why we are unable to make promises on the exact location of your room before arrival.

Nevertheless, we will always do our utmost to give all of our guests the rooms that they prefer.

We hope to be able to welcome you back soon to Hotel Des Indes.

Kind regards,

Pierre-Henri Bovsovers

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in this fantastic hotel and had a wonderful time. From the initial greeting at reception we knew this was going to be a great place. In fact all staff were so friendly yet efficient - the perfect mixture. The hotel itself is 5 star luxury and very opulent in an old-fashioned kind of way. We had a junior suite and very comfortable it was too. Breakfast was magnificent with the biggest choice of food I have ever seen. The hotel location was also excellent in a quiet area but within walking distance of attractions and shops. All in all highly recommended.

Dear Traveller,

Thank you so much for your wonderfull review. It is great to read that you have enjoyed your time in Hotel Des Indes.

Our breakfast buffet is always very fresh en we offer a wide selection of food. We think it is really important for all of our guests to be able to have a pick from our wide selection of options. From a full English breakfast to a healthy breakfast with fresh fruits and smoothies, but also toast with home smoked salmon and a glass of champagne. Anything is possible......

And, if your personall favourites are not on the buffet, our chefs are very much willing to prepare them on order. Also many of these options may be available in the a la carte menu.

We hope to welcome you back soon to Hotel Des Indes.

Kind regards,

Walking or driving from the city center (plein) towards this place you get a great view of this wonderful hotel. It's bright yellow facade makes this hotel stand out from the surrounding buildings and it just radiates hostorical magnificence and luxury.

Enthousiastic staff welcomes you at the revolving door entrance and the frontdesk staff makes you feel at home right away. The interior of the hotel is like a time machine taking you back more then a century although all modern conveniences are available. Nice rooms with especially nice and spacious bathrooms.

Great place to stay if you want to discover The Hague on foot or by public transportation. It's also an excellent location for a party or reception!

Room Tip: Check bookings.com for great offers up to a 50% discount. All rooms are different but equally nice!

This year Hotel Des Indes celebrates its 130 year jubilee. Since 1881 the hotel welcomes many different travellers that visit The Hague. Among them there were many celebrities, politicians, newly weds and royals.

In December, the Hotel Des Indes jubilee-book will be launched in which you can find many of these wonderful stories.

I've stayed at the hotel several times on business and it is a great option/alternative to staying in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The hotel has a great location and easy to walk to a tremendous number of cafes, restaurants, bistros, sights, Den Haag Centraal train station, shopping districts, Parliament, museums, etc. The rates are really competitive compared to similar class Amsterdam hotels and you won't stay at a nicer hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly, professional, accommodating, and efficient. They remember you when you come back. I haven't had any issues with consistency relating to rooms or service, though everyone is prone to have an off day - so far no problems.

The hotel is very quite and luxurious without being oppressive. There's a good chance you'll run into royalty, diplomats, or even ex-presidents at the hotel (I passed President Jimmy Carter at the front door when leaving the hotel last month). The hotel is well situated near the Centraal train station which provides easy access to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Harlem, Rotterdam, etc. The rooms are spacious, the in room teas & expresso are great, the spa well fitted (but a bit tight) and with a exercise pool, the lounge/restaurant/bar area well done, and the bathrooms are quite luxurious.

Next time I'm in the area I plan on staying there!

Room Tip: I prefer rooms in the front of the hotel as they have a better view and are quieter - unless they ar...

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. We had a wonderful time. The hotel is filled with ammenities that we really enjoyed using. The room was very comfortable lacking nothing you would need. The hotel is situated in a perfect location near the Central Station and bus stops. It is also easy to walk to all of the attractions in the area. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here in May 2011 and June 2011 during two separate visits. Very pretty hotel in a very good location. Service is good for the Netherlands, but not as good as, say, a Four Seasons Hotel. I had their renowned afternoon two twice--first time it was absolutely wonderful, second time it was lacking. Although this is a very nice hotel and I recommend it and would stay there again, their service is inconsistent.
